If it’s all in a name, THOR is the team to join for the Join the Fight 5K Walk/Run sponsored by the Bonnie J. Addario Lung Cancer Foundation. A play on words, THOR, represents the Thoracic Oncology Research Group at the Baptist Cancer Center. The team, led by Nick Faris, a project manager for the Baptist Clinical Research Institute, hopes to raise $5,000.
“We are very excited to continue our partnership with the Addario Foundation in support of our patients. Memphis is right in the middle of the highest areas of lung cancer incidence and mortality in the United States. Our desire is to change that story, through the highest quality clinical and research programs,” said Nick.
The Join the Fight 5K happens on April 21 at Shelby Farms in Memphis. Learn more about the walk and how to join THOR. Not in Memphis? Donations are equally welcome!
